Overall it was pretty good, only stayed for 2 days, but it was alright. They don't have enough outlets and the bathroom situation in the rooms is weird. But it's a nice bog hostel and pretty clean nice to have like locker things in the room, next to the bed. But there was a really rude guy who worked there, we rented bikes and when we came back to return them one of the keys was stuck, ( i got it out though ) and this guy just started yelling at us, guy was a major douche.

The hostel was ok but nothing spectacular, just very big. The room smelled damp, and its a bit far from Amsterdam's centre. It was also expesnsive for what I have paid in other places around Europe.

Awesome location!! Only bad thing is they there wasn't air conditioning and it was the hottest hostel I have ever stayed in...super uncomfortable in the rooms and in the lounge because it was so hot! And the windows wouldn't open all the way. Good breakfast tho! The location makes up for any negative things tho. Also bathroom connected to room which was awesome.

Not enough outlets in the dorms - one should be able to charge technology next to bed.

No wifi in the rooms. They also give you the absolute minimum so you have to pay for towels, no soap in the rooms in the bathroom, no outlets near beds etc.

Great location next to the park. Staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Would have been better with a kitchen and better bathroom facilities in the rooms. The breakfast is great :-)

The only problem I had was with the internet, because you can only access it from the lobby (which is always crowded) and its speed is not so good. On the other hand, the check-in was pretty easy, the staff is really helpful, they packed us breakfast for our last day as we would leave early, the hostel was clean and it's also close to the important points of the city without being in a very crowded place. I'd definitely recommend to stay there, especially if you're traveling with other people.

Not many complaints but this is more of a cheap hotel than a hostel. If you want good facilities for a reasonable price (by Amsterdam standards - i.e. pretty expensive) then this is a good place but if you want a good hostel environment (meeting other travellers, cosy lounge etc) then this is not the place.

The best hostel I ever been, staff are very good, very clean rooms and very good breakfast, my only issue is that is far from centrum, but as Amsterdam is very small, you can take the tram or just walk, or more dutch way, bike, I'm definitely returning to this hostel in my next visit in Amsterdam :)

Not the most centrally located hostel but being right next to Vondelpark has its perks. Overall a pretty solid hostel.

I persinally found the atmosphere here to be slightly impersonal since it was such a big hostel, but the staff were friendly and helpful and there were very complete and functional facilities.

The location is phenomenal and it's a great spot to navigate towards as home base. Everything was great other than the wifi only being in the common area. The breakfast was a tad bland but the location alone makes it.

Great hostel, no complaints, except that i think there should be individual outlets in the beds. Best breakfast from the hostels i've visited.

Great location! Close to the museums and nightlife scene outside of the red light district, but close enough to the red light if you fancy a short walk. Bar was a good place to me folks. The one down side was the at time large amount of children and lack of plugs. Still, the location near Vondel park is the best attribute.

Security: My lock had trouble fitting on your lockers due to their construction. Location: Stellar. Staff: Bar staff was inattentive and somewhat rude. Atmosphere: No complaints. Cleanliness: Sheet service / packaging was great. Value: Loved the included breakfast. Facilities: The WiFi's limited availability and incredibly slow speed created some frustration and timing issues for me. Including soap in bathroom areas would have been nice.
